ST185 to ST185RC intercooler swap?

Postby EvilStig » Sat Jul 29, 2017 12:50 am

I've gotten my hands on an ST185RC intercooler unit and would like to know part numbers and sources I could use to build the rest of the setup (water pump and radiator, primarily) since the OEM ones are not available. Has anyone else done this conversion and knows what parts fit? thanks!

You've got the only OEM part required, which is good. I know there are a variety of aftermarket pumps and heat exchangers people have used over the years that are more widely available than OEM, I think some of them are for Mustang Cobras. Do some searching and you should find the info you need.

My 205 swap came with everything and eventually I upgraded to a bigger pump and heat exchanger. So just do the research and go that way, it will cost less and perform better
